FROM MANAGING THE CAR TO MANAGING THE ROAD: THE DEVELOPMENT OF DRIVING SKILLS

Skilled driving requires complex cognitive and recognitional abilities. A cognitive task analysis (CTA) and a low tech simulation were used to study experience linked differences in these abilities. Inexperienced and experienced drivers participated. The inexperienced drivers struggled with control, as they worked to leep their car between the lines and execute turns; and in time, automated performance replaced conscience control.
